Union Home Minister Amit Shah declared on Saturday that Ahmedabad would soon become the world’s largest sports city.
Speaking at the unveiling function of the anthem and mascot for the 36th National Games at the EKA Arena, TransStadia here in Ahmedabad, Shah said: “Ten years ago, when Modiji was the chief minister here, he started the Khel Mahakumbh. At that time Gujarat was nowhere in sports on the global map”.
The event was also attended by Gujarat Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel and Union Minister of Youth Affairs and Sports Anurag Thakur.
The 36th National Games will be held in six Gujarat cities from September 29 to October 12
